The Elk Grove Lions Club supports many local organizations with their fundraisers. For example, we are able to provide the labor and staff to do a pancake breakfast or a spaghetti feed for your organization. We can also assist your organization by managing the bar at your event.
To provide that assistance, we need you to complete a request form and submit it to the Lions Club at least 2-3 months before the event. We have only one board meeting each month, on the 3rd Monday of the month, and that is the time that we review such requests. Since we receive many requests for assistance, the earlier you make your request the more likely that we will be able to support your fundraiser.
It is in your best interest to check our calendar to see if we are already occupied with a Lions Club event on the day you want to have your event. We may not be able to manage both events, so you may be better served in selecting a date that does not already conflict with our events.
If you personally know an Elk Grove Lion, you may want to ask that Lion if he or she will be the contact person on your request.
Fill out the form, (Click Here to Get The Form) and send it to the club so that we receive it before a board meeting. You can also email the club secretary to ask to be placed on the board meeting agenda so that you can tell us why we should assist you with your event. Email: Click Here To Email The Club Secretary. If that link does not work for you, go to our Contact Us page for more info.
KEEP IN MIND THAT IF YOU SUPPORT OUR EVENTS BELOW, WE MAY BE MORE INCLINED TO SUPPORT YOUR EVENT!!!
Our club has three major fund raising events each year.
St. Patrick’s Day Festival March 17, 2018 at the Pavilion at Elk Grove Regional Park
Day of the Dead — Carnitas Festival (October 28, 2017)
December Crab Feed (1st Saturday in December)
We use the funds that we generate at our fundraisers to be able to provide assistance to the dozens of programs that we manage each year. For example, our club spends about $500 each month on eye exams and eye glasses for people who cannot afford exams or glasses. We also provide a pancake breakfast every month for the Elk Grove Senior Center at a cost to the club of about $300 to $400 per month. We provide support to Boy Scout Troop 59 each year for their Eagle Scout Awards and their Court of Honor. We also support our high school graduates with an annual scholarship award through the Elk Grove Regional Scholarship Foundation. Another major program that we support is the Kohl’s Child Spree where we provide a pancake breakfast for about 200-300 kids and parents at no cost to the participants.
